Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Most of the characters in this romantic drama are waiting for something. Jeanne (Clementine Celarie) is waiting for her husband Francois (Daniel Olbrychski) to return; he abandoned her and their son Christophe (Gregoire Colin) a couple of years ago. The boy is waiting for his father, too. Meanwhile, Jeanne's current lover Marcel (Jean-Paul Lillienfeld) is waiting for her to come to her senses about the cad who went a way, and recognize the worthiness of his love for her. Finally, the absent husband is also waiting for the right time to make his belated reappearance. All this takes place near the gas station Jeanne runs in a dessicated and remote region in southern France.
